What is Healing Touch?

Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy. It assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Healing Touch works with your own energy field in which a trained Certified Healing Touch Practitioner will apply a light touch (or no touch) to your body which helps to bring your body back in balance. You will learn techniques for yourself to help you stay balanced.

Healing Touch was developed by Janet Mentgen, RN in 1989 as a continuing education program for nurses, other health care professionals and anyone who wanted to learn benefits from Healing Touch. It is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association.

Healing Touch is used in a wide variety of setting such as hospitals, hospice, long term care facilities, even spas and private practices.

What can I expect in a session?

You will lie down on the massage table fully clothed with glasses & shoes off. With your permission, Rosa may apply light touch (or no touch) to your body. She will assess your energy system before the session and again after the session. During the session, Rosa clears, connects, and balances your entire energy system.

Everyone’s experience is different.  Most people reported that they felt a state of deep relaxation during the session.  Sessions can be done in person or remote distance (via phone, video conference or programmed to receive at sleep time) Only private individual session is available since Healing Touch is not a group healing modality.

Barb from CT:

Hi Jiayuh - I had a CT scan of my lungs last Thursday and today I went for the results. Fantastic! The spots had virtually disappeared!!! She said it was an awesome report!!! I did not do anything different. The only thing I can think of is Healing Touch. I am thrilled and wanted you to know!!!

Cindy from CT:

I initially went in to help with pain in my hip, and learned that I could benefit from so much more than I realized. I had depression, anxiety, headaches, vertigo, and anger issues (just to name a few).
I learned calming and balancing techniques, and more knowledge about myself and about life. When I started with you in March of 2013, looking back now I can’t believe I had pain every day, headaches 3 to 5 times a week, angry all time, vertigo daily as well as depression.
I made progress over time and now I find that I am calm, my headaches and depression gone, no more big anger outbursts, and my vertigo is gone! I practice what you taught me and find that I can handle so many things now.
You are a great teacher and you always explained everything to make sure I understood. What a great experience, I highly recommend you and what you do to everyone! Thanks so very truly!

Pat from CT:

I am extremely grateful to be able to share my experience and thankfulness for the many health benefits that I have received from my healing touch therapist, Jiayuh Chyan. Without Jiayuh’s kind and gentle touch, my life would have been very miserable and my health would have been in danger.

Over an extended period of time, I had been under extreme personal and professional stress. I had started to develop a series of stress related symptoms: chest pains, headaches, and difficulty sleeping. Physically, there were problems with an old injury, Achilles tendon and ankle, that would not resolve and had started to slow my everyday movements.
Believing that I should be able to control my response to all outside factors, I continued to push forward without seeking any medical intervention. At my Tai Chi class, I was unable to relax and concentrate or rest my mind. One of my classmates suggested that I seek out Jiayuh and speak to her regarding her practice of healing touch. As my concern for my health increased, I did speak to Jiayuh who graciously took me on as a client.

We began with a full assessment of what I was experiencing in the fall of 2011. Jiayuh documented all my concerns, directed her questions in a non judgmental way, and began a full introduction into her healing touch therapy. Her explanation of healing touch, health benefits that I could expect if practiced, and systematic approach appealed to me.
Being a somewhat tentative person, I was willing to proceed with the therapy because I was desperate to start to relieve the stress I was feeling without any drugs. Healing touch was a healthy way to improve my life and handle stress.

Over the next few sessions, Jiayuh taught me techniques that I could use anytime, anywhere to bring my stress level down and clear my mind. These techniques have now been ingrained in my daily activities. When I feel overwhelmed by the craziness of the office, I close my door and take five minutes to regroup, relax, and recharge. My staff even relates that I seem better when the door reopens!

During the fall and winter months, many challenges have occurred. From natural disasters to professional problems, I have been able to reduce my stress level and maintain a very aggressive work schedule.
Although I have not become as proficient as Jiayuh, her teachings have become part of a daily routine reducing my stress level considerably. I no longer feel the stress gathering in my chest; and when it does get stressful, I have a routine to follow.

I will continue to see Jiayuh. She has taught me how to use healing touch techniques. She continues to provide me with insight into how to use my energy, she challenges me to change my perception and grow as a person. Jiayuh has returned my smile....thank you again, Jiayuh.
